The clinic provides laboratory and primary care with a possibility of increasing services in future. The medical director of Renown medical group, Dr. McCormack participated in a phone interview with NNBW. He mentioned that the clinic aims at designing to provide a more inviting and comfortable setting for those looking for its services. They want to create a more flexible space such that when patients go to the clinic, they feel like they are in their living room. They will also design a conference room where the staff can discuss on medical matters with their patients. Dr. McCormack also mentioned that there might be changes in the healthcare industry.
The changes may occur due to President Trump’s administration proposed appeals such as replacement of Obamacare.The clinic at South Reno has 11 staff. They are looking for additional primary care physicians and more nurses. The hospital is built on a 10,000 square-foot land, and it has three vacant storefronts.
